First Amendment scholars question KU’s immediate discipline of cheerleaders connected to ‘Kkk go trump’ social media post

This photo just looks like a jab at Trump and some of his supporters, as the article mentions as a possibility. I'd be really surprised if it's anything but that, and I think the university went way overboard in its response in an attempt to avoid accusations of negligence. If that's the case, it'd be very disappointing that we've reached this point.
